Jurgen Klopp's men are fancied to record their third straight win of the Premier League campaign against their high-flying opponents

Liverpool’s clash against Arsenal (2.30am AEST) will be the headline match of the upcoming round with the Reds fancied on Sportsbet to record a fourth consecutive Premier League win ($1.53) at home over the North London club.

Both teams have collected all six Premier League points on offer so far and a draw ($4.33) between the table-toppers at Anfield is not out of the question.

Liverpool had to fight hard to bag all three points at Southampton last weekend but will be glad to be back on their home turf where they recorded a thumping 4-1 win over Norwich in the season opener.

The Reds' last two Anfield outings against Arsenal have been high-scoring wins with the home side recording 5-1 and 4-1 victories. A big win like 3-0 ($13.00) and 4-0 ($23) is a chance on Saturday and will fetch handsome returns.

Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino got on the scoresheet against the Saints and has good odds on opening the scoring ($5) against Arsenal. The entire Liverpool front three has been looking lively at the start of the season and Firmino ($1.91), Mohamed Salah ($1.72) and Sadio Mane ($1.91) are all fancied to get on the scoresheet at some stage.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have made a positive start to their season and Unai Emery’s men have all the tools at their disposal to cause a big upset against Liverpool on current form ($5.00).

Star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made a bright start with the Gabonese nabbing two goals in two matches and he will want to keep up that perfect record with another strike ($2.50) against the Reds.

His partnership with Alexandre Lacazette is blossoming once again and the Frenchman will be desperate to get on the scoresheet himself ($3.10) to add to the one league goal he has scored so far.

On-loan midfielder Dani Ceballos has already got Arsenal fans raving with his two displays so far and the Spaniard possesses an excellent long-range strike. The Real Madrid man is an outside candidate ($6.00) to open his account in the Premier League.

There have been some high-scoring draws over the years between the two combatants and a 2-2 ($14.00) and 3-3 ($41) scoreline at Anfield will both yield excellent returns. A 0-0 ($23.00) stalemate between the two Premier League giants would go against recent history but is not out of the question.
